A wealth of information
Jul 2021 • Couples
Very interesting museum. We were welcomed and shown around. We're planning a return visit as you need time to study the wealth of items on display. My highlight was seeing and sitting in the car from the Ghost Town video. It is a very reasonable price to get in £4 at time of writing. Well worth supporting if you love music and recognise the hard work put in to present this great collection that is not all ska so plenty of other stuff to learn about.

May 2021 • Couples
Had weekend in Coventry and saw Coventry Music Museum advertised. Visited Sunday and had such a great time. Played the guitar and piano on entry. Went round the exhibits and got a guided tour. Ghost town car and karaoke got some use and photos. Thanks to Pete and the team. Would recommend to anyone who likes Ska or 2 Tone music or good music. Give them your support.

As a Coventry kid who grew up here in the 70s and 80s it was great fun to reminisce, particularly as I was here with a school friend!

A Must see for all music fans
May 2021 • Friends
Located in the heart of Coventry’s 2 Tone Village, The museum lovingly and carefully curates Coventry’s musical history together with the social and economic climate that gave rise to it.

The many varied exhibits showcase the music, artists, producers, pioneers, fashions and backdrop to the scene as it developed.

This is a must-see for music fans of all genres.

We were given a guided tour by Ian who, along with Pete is a font of knowledge.

There are a few surprises too, in particular a faithful reconstruction of Pete’s office at Morris Cars and a telephone that I wholeheartedly recommend you answer…. You won’t be disappointed.

After your visit enjoy a meal at The Simmer Down Café serving traditional fayre in addition to a Caribbean Menu that you really must try, I had the Mutton Curry with Rice n Peas which was fantastic.

Don’t forget the shopping. The village includes some fantastic stores including the ‘Hall of Fame’ memorabilia store and ‘2 Tone Corner’ a clothes store with authentic well priced clothing and accessories

Highly recommended
